What Makes the Honda Pilot Such a Great Family Vehicle?

Growing families today are looking for SUVs with space and style to get around safely. Three-row SUVs are clear winners. The Honda Pilot is an excellent choice for families in many ways.

It might just be the best choice. Like the CR-V, it provides a variety of features that makes it not only a pleasure for families to drive but extremely practical too.

2019 Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot’s three-rows has plenty of room for up to eight passengers. It provides an abundance of safety features and the latest technology. It is also a vehicle that retains its value exceptionally well. Adventurous families will appreciate the standard V6 engine and available all-wheel-drive system. The 2019 Honda Pilot was named one of the 12 Best Family Cars of 2019 by Kelly Blue Book and a multi-year winner of the KBB Best Buy Award for midsize SUVs.

There is room for everyone 

With seating for eight, the Pilot is one of the most comfortable three-row SUVs in its class. Should you prefer to separate children in the second row, a captain’s chairs configuration, instead of a bench seat, is also available in the seven-seat Pilot. 

Bringing more people along means needing more room for the things they bring with them. You’ll be pleased to find that everything and everyone fits nicely in the Pilot. Owners appreciate the underfloor storage and the ample amount of room behind the last row. 

Special features for families

There are a couple of features that were made especially made with families in mind. Cabin Talk is a unique feature that allows the driver to communicate with passengers in the back through the speakers or directly into their headphones. The “conversation mirror” is another feature that helps families communicate easily on the road. 

Safety is always standard with Honda Sensing

Honda Sensing, their signature safety suite, is standard in all five trims. These safety and driver-assistance features range from automatically applying the brakes to prevent a crash to systems that help keep the driver within the lanes. Adaptive cruise control is also included.

Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert will help you navigate the highway and neighborhoods. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration are available at select trim levels too. The audiophiles in your life will thank you for upgrading. 

All-wheel drive available for offroading

Families who enjoy off-road adventuring will be happy to hear that all-wheel drive is available. The Honda Pilot will impress you with its capabilities handling situations in mud, sand, and snow. If you require towing a boat or trailer, the Pilot will be able to pull the weight. AWD will allow you to pull 5, 000 pounds. Front-drive models have a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
